Co-designed with St. Paul, Minnesota-based BWBR Architects, who also served as the architect of record, the center supports traditional fitness programs as well as ambitious programs in education and research. Physical assessment areas, laboratories, and examination rooms enable staff members to capture and analyze data relating to the effectiveness of fitness programs.
